Washing and maintenance of goose down duvets

Jun 06, 2022

Goose down is an expensive product and, in order to preserve it carefully, it is important to know how to wash it and keep it in the best possible way.

If it does not suffer particular damage, the duvet can be easily washed once a year before being put away; in fact, frequent washing is not necessary to keep it fresh. To obtain higher performance, we recommend shaking the duvet often and gently, exposing it to the air to restore volume and fluffiness to the feather.

If you notice dust on the surface, we recommend removing it with a light-handed brush. We recommend not to beat the goose down forcefully to avoid breaking the feathers inside.

The recommended washing is 40°; in fact, medium temperatures avoid damaging the external fabric.

Dry cleaning allowed in the laundry following the washing instructions carefully.

Use mild detergents and plenty of water to make sure you remove all traces of soap. Avoid using chlorine-based detergents which irreparably damage the feather.

Carry out the spin cycle to remove as much water as possible.

Allowed to tumble dry at medium/low temperatures. We recommend drying your duvets in an upright position in the open air. Always keep duvets in the shade so as not to yellow the outer fabric.

Use or store the duvet only when totally dry. We recommend storing the duvet in a dry place inside a cotton bag. Zenoni&Colombi, together with its duvets, provides a practical dust bag for storing them.

Do not store goose down in plastic bags or vacuum-packed to avoid damaging the down filling.
